Online Poker Set to Be Legalised in Croatia

CroatiaCroatia has just been given approval from the European Commission regarding new proposed gambling laws, which will open the door for online poker to be legalised in the country…

Once the law is passed through parliament it means that online poker operators will legally be able to offer their services in Croatia. According to reports in the media, online operators offering games to Croatian players will have to apply for a gaming licence from the Ministry of Finance, front up with a start-up fee of 390,000 euros, and commit to an annual fee of the same amount.

It is also reported that operators will be hit with certain taxes, including a 5% monthly levy on gross revenue. Players winnings are also subjected to tax in Croatia which the operators will have to manage. The tax tiers for winnings are: winnings from 750-10,000 kuna – 10%, up to 30,000 kuna – 15%, up to 500,000 kuna – 20% and any winnings more than 500,000 kuna – 30%.
